I have several WeMo switches and motion sensors and whem i was playing around with them I was very sad to find out that if my A/C is disconnected from power that when using the switch it will not come back on and I was trying to find a solution to this problem when an Idea hit me. Programable IR light. My A/C like many others uses an IR remote control and if I could put an IR emitter on the WeMo app it would allow me not just on/off but full functionality of the A/C. that also led me to realize that would open up the posibility of full control of a TV as well or anything that uses a remote.

WeMo Insight Switch is available for e.g. US, UK and German-style sockets, but not for French-style sockets.
Please implement the product also for French-style sockets. I am particularly interested in getting the product in Czech Republic which uses such sockets, but I guess the big French market will be stronger motivation for this product.
I'm impressed with Wemo's set-up method - using the app to connect the device to the wifi network.
I'd love to be able to see a chart of power consumed and on & off times. Ideally I could download a csv file with all that data for each wemo device. This might be better achieved in a web interface with your wemo servers.
Very clever, and I like where it looks like you're going!
This is pretty neat, but falls just short of awesome. What would really make it a killer app for me would be data collection — if it told you how much power the outlet is drawing so you could chart it and twiddle for maximum efficiency, etc. C'est possible?
